Monkeys!

Monkeys!

Hi everyone and Happy Thursday!  Hope you are having a good week!  Last night, I crafted with my 2 little monkeys- we didn’t have much time…just a half hour.  I told them how much time we had, and that we would need to leave a few minutes at the end to clean up our mess.  My kids are REALLY good at leaving all kinds of scraps, punches, glue, glitter, and more behind them! :)

I just love to see them happily creating- it gets messy- but, I am glad they enjoy something I enjoy. And, since they are 5 & 7, they know where the supplies are that they are allowed to use, and how to get them- and that means mommy gets to make a project too!

So, here’s what I made in my half hour– with time to pick up my mess too! :)

My first personalized ornament of the season…and isn’t it CA-UTE?!  The little boy this ornament is for, loves monkeys- well, at least his mom does. ;) So, I thought this monkey file from Monkey Around  at Lettering Delights. of course I had to add his name, and the year. I cut the files out using 4 layers of vinyl (black, brown, pink, tan)

 

After, I did all the vinyl work- I filled my ornament with gold glitter.  I use spray adhesive and Martha Stewart gold glitter. (You can use regular spray adhesive or Repositionable Adhesive…either will work!)

Here’s a video on how to make your own.  Oh, and the ornaments I used come in a 4 pack at Hobby Lobby- they are round, flat glass ornaments that are 4 inches.

 

You know the great thing?  There is STILL PLENTY of time to get some glass ornaments and make your own–or make them as gifts!  IF you make any- I’d love to see them!

  1. So cute!!

  2. thank you for the idea on this one I think I am going to have to make some as gifts..you mentioned you use vinyl are you using the spray adhesive to sick the vinyl to the glass?

    thanks

    • The spray adhesive is for the inside glitter- and the vinyl will stick to the glass by itself. :) So quick and easy to make! Let me know if you have any other questions :)

  3. Ooohhh, an excuse to go out shopping for glitter. I love glitter, but just haven’t had a reason to buy it.

  4. How sweet is this?! What a great idea and it’s super cute!

  5. Super Cute idea!Love the little monkey!
